Blood Red Moon, July 2018

Posted in Prophecy, Rapture, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2018 by paulthepoke

A lunar eclipse or a blood red moon is set for Friday, July 27, 2018. This will be the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The moon will be at its furthest point from the earth during the eclipse (apogee). As a result, the moon will be travelling at its slowest orbit and speed. The eclipse will last 1 hour and 43 minutes. An average eclipse lasts about 50 minutes.

Sorry, the eclipse will not be viewed in North America. This show is for Europe, Asia, and Africa. There should be some great pictures of the event. Enjoy the blood moon.

Joel 2:31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

Peter quotes the verse above in Acts 2:20.

The answer lies in the verse. Read carefully. Note the word “before”. Is the upcoming event a “sign”? If it is a sign, it is just that… a sign. A sign indicates something is coming. Nothing is going to happen other than an incredible celestial event.

But perversion and twisting of the verse have run amuck… The doomsday prophets are back! The date setters and the hype machine are spinning out of control… For the record…

July 27, 2018 is NOT the RAPTURE.

July 27, 2018: Jesus is NOT coming back to Earth.

July 27, 2018 is NOT the END.

July 27, 2018 is NOT ________________.

The earth will still be spinning. “It” is not hitting the fan on July 27, 2018.

 

Don’t kid yourself. We are trending hard to a date with destiny…

Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. -Jesus

 

To review and for now…

  • There is no 10-nation beast federation. Daniel 7, Revelation 17
  • There is no 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. Matthew 24:15
  • There is no covenant with many. Daniel 9:27
  • There are no cries of pending peace and safety. 1 Thessalonians 5:3
  • There is no antichrist on the global scene. Revelation 13, 19

 

As a reminder, Jesus said this…

Matthew 24:36 But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.

See also Mark 13:32.

…that day and hour no one knows…Granted, this phrase may be a veiled and figurative comment that possibly points to the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. Yes, it could be one of two days for the fall appointment pending the confirmation of the new moon. July 27, 2018 is not even a God Appointment per the Mosaic Law. We are not even to the Hebrew month of Elul and the 40-day period of Teshuvah. This event is a full moon not a new moon!

…nor the Son…To those who support and advocate for Rapture and doom in July 2018, the claim is being made you have been given divinely inspired revelation that not even Jesus Christ knows. And He is God. He died for all the sins of the world. Jesus put in some serious bloodshed and sacrificial effort. Christ claims He does not know.

But we should listen to you, mortal and fallen human, because you “know”??? Come on…

…not even the angels of heaven…There are angels in Heaven in the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Son, and the Father in the throne room. The angels don’t know either.

 

Don’t get sucked into the hype and hysteria.

For the record, I am not claiming to know the date of the rapture or the physical return to Earth by Jesus or whatever. But I do know, date setters are totally defeated in history.

 

 

US Embassy Move to Jerusalem Set for “This Generation” ???, February 2018

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2018 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:2a “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around…

The date has been set. News of the move broke via Twitter.

The United States will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Israel’s 70th Independence Day. The date is May 14, 2018.

This is 70 years to the date President Harry Truman announced the re-birth of Israel.

May 14, 1948: late morning eastern standard time (late afternoon in Palestine): David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, reads a “Declaration of Independence,” which proclaims the existence of a Jewish state called Israel beginning on May 15, 1948, at 12:00 midnight Palestine time (6:00 p.m., May 14, 1948, eastern standard time).

May 14, 1948, 6 p.m. eastern standard time (12:00 midnight in Palestine): The British mandate for Palestine expires, and the state of Israel comes into being.

May 14, 1948, 6:11 p.m. eastern standard time: The United States recognizes Israel on a de facto basis. The White House issues the following statement: “This Government has been informed that a Jewish state has been proclaimed in Palestine, and recognition has been requested by the provisional government thereof. The United States recognizes the provisional government as the de facto authority of the State of Israel.”

https://www.trumanlibrary.org/israel/palestin.htm

 

“We’re planning to open the new US Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem in May. The Embassy opening will coincide with Israel’s 70th anniversary. The Embassy will initially be located in Arnona, on a compound that currently houses the consular operations of Consulate General Jerusalem. At least initially, it will consist of the Ambassador and a small team.” -US State Department

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/US-confirms-Jerusalem-embassy-opening-in-May-543467

See video link below for geography and additional analysis.

Sheldon Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands, is willing to privately pay for the embassy move. The cost is estimated to be $500 million. Adelson is a supporter of the Republican Party. He has also backed both President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in the past.

http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/US-considers-offer-from-Sheldon-Adelson-to-fund-Jerusalem-embassy-move-543504

 

The Palestinians refer to Israeli Independence as Nakba Day. Nakba is the Arabic word for “catastrophe”. They acknowledge Nakba Day the day after Israel’s declaration on May 15. Nakba day was initiated on Israel’s 50th Independence Day by Yasser Arafat. The day is typically celebrated with conflict and skirmishes against the Israeli Defense Forces.

As a result, Palestinians have responded in anger and rage. Violence broke out in Gaza and the West Bank.

Saeb Erekat, Senior Palestinian Negotiator made the following statements.

“Determination to violate international law, destroy the two-state solution and provoke the feelings of the Palestinian people as well as of all Arabs, Muslims and Christians around the globe. Trump and his team have disqualified the US from being part of the solution between Israelis and Palestinians; rather, the world now sees that they are part of the problem.”

Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas Official was quoted.

“Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem is a declaration of war against the Arab and Muslim nation, and the US administration must reconsider its move.”

Some would argue, the time span covered in this post is a Biblical generation.

Psalm 90:10 The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

Are we entering a prophetic window of time??? The context is the Olivet Discourse and the end of time scenario. Jesus made this comment.

Matthew 24:33-34 So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

 

It is ultimately your personal business…But I highly recommend getting right with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, by this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…

Search your heart, think about it…

 

And its end will come with a flood, Part 2…Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , on August 15, 2017 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis Pic“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Jesus according to Matthew 24:37-39

So now we have two questions.
1. Where can we find a time that would indicate a flood at the end of the interval between the 69th and the 70th Week?

2. Does that flood indicate the coming of the Son of Man?”

 

The focus of this post is on the first question.

I believe if we study the Sixth Seal in chapter Six of Revelation, we find a strong evidence for both.

Revelation 6:12-17 “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and EVERY MOUNTAIN AND ISLAND WAS MOVED OUT OF ITS PLACE. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For THE GREAT DAY of His wrath HAS COME, and who is able to stand?’”

shelf clouds

Of the many things happening in this Seal is what appears to be a meteor shower with something happening on the earth large enough to cause “the sky to recede as a scroll.” (Nuclear exchange?) Along with this every mountain and island is moved out of place. Although it doesn’t mention it directly, we can easily infer that this massive global movement (the powers of the heavens shall be shaken) is enough to create many tsunamis that would strike multiple coastlines. Since some of the largest population centers are along the coasts, the losses will be catastrophic. That is the time of the flood at the end of “it”. And satisfies our first question.

Stay tuned for the second question in my next post.

Trend Update: Quakes in Various Places, Japan, November 2016

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Mark 13:8. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

Japan, November 21, 2016: An earthquake registering as high as 7.3 magnitude has struck off the coast near Fukushima. Yes, that is the same Fukushima of March 2011.

Tsunami warnings have been issued. Buoy data has been knocked out of commission near the quake area.

For earthquake geeks out there, I highly recommend these two social media personalities.

New Zealand, November 13, 2016: A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has struck. The epicenter is located approximately 55-60 miles northeast of Christchurch.

People living in low lying areas along the shore line are headed for higher ground. Buildings and houses have collapsed. Electricity and phone lines have been impacted.

Roads have been blocked by landslides. Roads are reported to be buckled.

Up to 10-15 feet tsunami waves are being reported. Waves are estimated to continue and last hours. People are obviously being warned to stay away from the beach.

The article link below from www.mirror.co.uk is an excellent source of information. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/powerful-earthquake-hits-christchurch-new-9251440

http://news.trust.org/item/20161113113702-re5f9

Following the 7.8 tremblor, 16+ aftershocks have been reported ranging from 4.9 to 6.9 in magnitude.

Even more disturbing is a series of quakes located north of New Zealand near Fiji. There have been 6 quakes in the last few days of a magnitude of 4.5 to 5.6. They have occurred approximately 300 – 350 miles below the surface of the planet. The pressure release has to go somewhere…

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken.

Let me be clear. This is not about religion. It has nothing to do with some flutter in your belly or the hair on the back of your neck standing up. God does not care how many times one genuflects in church, raises their hands, closes their eyes, beats oneself up, or sacrifice chickens or whatever! We cannot appease or atone with our actions. God hates religion!

https://paulthepoke.com/2010/10/04/isaiah-110-15-god-hates-religion/

This is about getting your heart, mind, and soul right with the Creator. This book, the Bible, says His Son, Jesus Christ, is physically coming back to get His people the church, the rapture. And He will return to establish His kingdom on earth.

Hebrews 9:28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

Trend Update: Sun’s Coronal Hole Increases, October 2016

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2016 by paulthepoke

There are multiple references in the Bible regarding the impact on the sun during the tribulation or what is called The Day of the Lord by the prophets. (Joel 2:2, Joel 2:10, Joel 3:15, Zephaniah 1:15, Isaiah 13:6, 9, 10, Isaiah 24:23, Amos 5:20, Matthew 24:29, Revelation 6:12b, Revelation 8:12, Revelation 9:2, and Revelation 9:18b).

We are not in the tribulation. There is no Jewish Temple for the antichrist to desecrate.

October 27, 2016: The coronal hole in the sun continues to grow.

A coronal hole is an area where the sun’s atmosphere is less dense. These holes contain less solar material. A lower temperature is noted than the rest of the corona. These areas tend to send out the fastest solar winds. A coronal hole cannot be seen in visible light with the naked eye. But it can be seen via ultraviolet light.

In May 2016, the coronal hole was estimated to be more than 10% of the sun’s surface area.

Look at the side by side comparison. Pictures courtesy of www.helioviewer.org

The solar winds from the coronal hole causes geomagnetic storms on Earth. The solar winds can play havoc with the electrical grid, satellites, telecommunication equipment, radar function, solar cell damage, cable disruption, pipeline corrosion, internet, and airline passenger radiation.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3873644/A-massive-coronal-hole-sun-blasting-Earth-solar-storms-CRIPPLE-power-grids.html

Some scientists believe there is a link to increased solar wind speeds and earthquake activity.

Scientists have linked coronal holes with devastating earthquakes in recent times: Japan magnitude 8.5 and Nepal magnitude 7.8.

http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/549270/solar-storm-coronal-holes-earthquake-europe

Volcanic activity, earthquake frequency and intensity are on the increase all across the planet.

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Mark 13:8. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

Isaiah, Ezekiel, Joel, Nahum, Amos, Haggai, Zechariah, Job, and David the Psalmist have references to earthquakes during the Day of the Lord.

There are at least 7 references to earthquakes in the book of Revelation alone.

Luke 21:28 “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” –Jesus

So…is Jesus credible?

Trend Update: Quakes in Various Places, Salton Sea, Bombay Beach, California, September 2016

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2016 by paulthepoke

Over the past week, there has been a swarm of earthquakes under the Salton Sea. Granted, most of the earthquakes have been less than 2.5 in magnitude. One issue is the location. This earthquake swarm is located on the southern edge of the San Andreas Fault Line. At the time of this post, approximately 275 tremors have occurred under the Salton Sea in the last week. Is the Big One coming???

Mark 13:7-8 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.    –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Luke 21:11. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

Is this Jesus referring to here and now of the early 21st century? If not, no big deal, life goes on.

If so, serious consequences. BIG TROUBLE for earthlings.

Think about it.
